2010 in Cards

Morning folks.....hope you all had a lovely happy and peaceful Christmas....that Santa popped down your chimney with lots of gorgeous presents and unlike me you didn't stuff yourself silly with food....hasn't quite sunk in yet that it has been and gone for another year and in a few days time we will be celebrating and stuffing our faces all over again.
Time to resurrect an idea from last year....this may become a Christmas Cubbyhole Tradition....yes I am going to share my favourite cards from 2010... two for each month because "Mrs Can't Make Her Mind Up" found it a bit hard to choose just one....time to grab a cuppa...park your bum on a comfy sofa because it's a bit of a photo fest....













and for those of you who are regular surprises that nearly all my favourites are using either Hero Arts or Penny Black's beautiful stamps.  Why don't you join in the fun....leave me a comment with a link to your blog... I would love to see your fabulous favourites from 2010.
I will be back to work tomorrow in the cubbyhole...bah humbug....a last minute Fiskars project to get done before the end of the year and I've had a little clear out in the cubbyhole to make way for my new look out for a Post Christmas Give-Away coming soon.
Hugs Kath xxx

Hi Kath, Hope you and Buddy enjoyed your Xmas day.
Wow, how fantastic to see your fave cards all in one fell swoop, I've so enjoyed seeing them again, I can't possibly choose a favourite as each and every one is absolutely beautiful!
Hugs Jacee

I'm glad that you are going to make this a tradition! It's great seeing the best of the best all in one big gulp! Def. PB and HA, but a fair amount of his Lordship of Timmie in there as well! Hope you and the bundle of Golden Deliciousness had a Merry Christmas.

Kath, what can I say? First Happy Christmas to you and the golden boy. Your cards are just amazing and has made me more determined to make the long trek through to Alford as many times as I can next year to come to your workshops/ demos. Keep up the good work and have a fab New Year.

Eveline said...

It's a good thing I don't have to pick just one favorite, they are all beautiful.

Hi Kath - hope you and yours had a lovely Christmastime and Santa was good to you all.
Lovely to see all your favourite cards of 2010 - some I'd forgotten, but all just gorgeous. Can't wait to see what 2011 brings!

Kath, glad to see that you had a lovely Christmas and got some lovely goodies to play with. Well finding my favourite cards for 2010 was even more demanding than some challenges but I've had a go and played along.

As for your cards, they are all WONDERFUL but my favourites have to be the poppy ones as I so love poppies.

I wish you all the very best for 2011 and will look forward to seeing your wonderful creations.

Here are my favourite cards for 2010

Best wishes

Hi Kath,
I didn't start my blog till March so it was nice to see the earlier in the year ones and fabulous to ooo and aww again at the rest of the years. Fantastic, beautiful work.
I couldn't take part in this as you have probably thrown better cards than mine in the bin. By the way my waste bin is the 1 item in my craft room that I certainly couldn't do without.
Happy New Year to you and Buddy and your DH as he doesn't get much of a mention.

Glad you had a lovely Christmas day with your family Kath. After a very trying week last week we got oil and got to Crieff for Christmas.

Love your choice of favourite cards. I might have to trawl through mine too. Meant to be more organised and decide which one was my fave every month. Somehow didn't happen. Not really a surprise!!

Allison said...

Stunning cards kath, especially love the blue and brown colourways you use together, must give that a try! Hope the dreaded lurgy leaves you soon and it's business as usual in the cubby hole!

Hugs to the Furry One,

Jane said...

Kath I do hope you are feeling better soon!x
It has taken me a while but I have managed to pick me faves out!lol

Papillon said...

What a lovely year of cards-am a dedicated follower.Thank you so much for your inspiration.
I raise my glass of lemsip to you and wish you a happy new year!

Linby said...

Your cards are simply stunning. I love the poppies as they are my fav flower, but the November one is just breathtaking. I wish I could create like this - will study them and try!

Anette said...

How wonderful to see your own favorites pass my screen once again. It's a great idee to remenisce the past year. So I made one myself. Aren't you amazed of how much artwork you made in just one year?
I wish you and your loved ones a Wonderful New Year......and keep that inspiration flowing!
